    I just watched a few loops of the Information TV stuff..... could be better

    Maybe it's that I already know Liverpool, I know the attractions and events they're advertising already, but as for "this is the European Capital of Culture" it used it more as a slogan than its real meaning.

    As for taking over the Information TV channel for 24 hours: I never watch that channel anyway, and I must say the big title with the name "Liverpool" jumped out at me flicking through the channel guide, but wouldn't it have been better to have smaller features in the more mainstream channels?

    Anyway: in the words of Ringo: Peace And Love and Happy New Year all

    There's a brief article on Liverpool in this months Sky Magazine, written by Mariella Frostrup who presents programmes on Sky Arts -

    ~~~~~~~

    Liverpool Rocks!

    Find out why the city is such a worthy winner of the title of 2008 European Capital of Culture...

    There are lots of reasons to love Liverpool right now - just ask former Beatle, Ringo Starr, who'll be heading up the city's programme of events for it's year as European Capital of Culture. The celebrations start this month with a one-off performance of Liverpool the Musical, a star-studded production about the city's history. So what makes Merseyside great?

    1 Music: It boasts more artists who've had Number One singles than any other city in the world. The Beatles and fellow Liverpudlian uber-groups, such as Frankie Goes to Hollywood, are to be thanked for this musical feat.

    2 Architecture: The Royal Liver Building was Britian's first skyscraper, while the city's waterfront is a World Heritage Site - on a par with Egypt's pyramids!

    3 The Arts: Tate Liverpool houses significant works of modern art, and in 2007 played host to the Turner Prize.

    4 Film It's edgy, urban landscape and history has earned Liverpool the title of 'Britain's most filmed city outside London'. Think films such as Educating Rita and The Hunt for Red October, and hits shows Bread and Brookside.

    LIVERPOOL THE MUSICAL, SAT 12 JAN, LIVERPOOL ECHO ARENA; VISIT LIVERPOOL08.COM FOR INFO ON THIS AND MORE


    Lots more could be added to the above 3 instances of course including adding more groups, including more Grade I & II listed buildings outside of London than anywhere and adding that only Liverpool and the 4 home capital cities have a National Museums and Galleries.
